Based on my LMP I am 8 weeks today. Went in for my first ultrasound (vaginal). The tech showed us the sac and she saw a flicker, but said I was much earlier than 8 weeks. She didnt give exact age, but I'm assuming closer to 6 weeks. They scheduled me for another ultrasound in a week and rescheduled my appt with my OB until after the next ultrasound. Does that sound normal, or is there anything I should be concerned about? I have been so anxious about this pregnancy, so this ultrasound freaked me out. Seems crazy that there could possibly be a 1.5 week difference in gestational age.

I'm an American living outside the US. Where I live, doctors make it seem like it is NOT an option to forgo NIPT and amniocentesis. You MUST do one, they say, or you're basically a psychopath.Ladies, what are your American docs telling you about these tests? Who is doing which tests? For reference, this is my first pregnancy and I'm 31 (will be 32 when I give birth).
